I have recently made the truly awesome discovery that I can, in fact, read and knit at the same time. And when I say read, I am not talking about following along with the subtitles on an anime or foreign film. I'm talking about opening up a blog, or article, or bit of fic and READING! Now when I run out of things I want to watch on television, or more likely when I'm between Netfilx deliveries, I have more options than finding something not horrible on cable ^_^. I am very limited to just knitting of course, nothing I have to look at to do, but still.

Now if only I could figure out how to knit and work out at the same time. :)

Doing the Lace thing

Well crud muffins! I was doing so well and now I get to have the pleasure of ripping back 2 rows. Which really wouldn't be so bad except for the little thing where there are 560 stitches to each row -_- I just really felt like there should be yarn overs in the pattern right there. *le sigh*
This is the pattern currently punishing me for paying more attention to Due South than it, Evenstar by Susan Pandorf in some lovely lace Madelinetosh Lepidoptr:

I may possible be crazy but I am trying to get it along with a pair of socks and a scarf done by the 22nd of July. I am really hoping I can manage to get down to New Orleans one more time before I move and these are all gifts for people who live there. I think it is theoretically possible....maybe...
